I started my journey in 2002 as a .Net developer from a software house called Enterprise Business Solution in Pakistan, where I went above and beyond. Over time my company introduced the Great Plains 7.5 version in the Pakistan market and luckily I have been given a unique chance to discover the ERP world. In those days there were very few resources to learn and acquire knowledge, but there is no boundary to human endeavor and you can always find ways if you try hard enough. A few years later in 2008, I Joined ICON Solutions in the Middle East (Bahrain) to work on AX 2009 where I did my first AX implementation in engineering and construction sector.

In 2010, I joined Global ITS Group in Bahrain to continue my journey as an AX consultant to implement supply chain management in the automotive spare parts & restaurants sector. In 2011, I joined Sermon business solution in Saudi Arab - Sermon is the company that gave me a great opportunity to grow and get involved in various Dynamics AX implementations in manufacturing industries, construction firms, architecture and engineering sector.

In 2014, my journey continued with a Lebanese company in Oman called International software solutions as a Dynamics 365 Team lead where I learned to improve team building and leadership skills. In 2017 another exciting chapter of my career began when I joined System Limited Pakistan as AVP – Enterprise Services. I was honored to be part of the super talented implementation team and together we built many success stories. 2019 was a successful and exciting year as well when I moved to our Germany office.

Overall I have 14 years of experience in different industries and I have worked as a solution consultant and architect with different MS partners and was accountable for the design and delivery of solution blueprints primarily focusing on implementation of Dynamic 365 Finance and Operation, Project Service Automation and Cross-Product solution integration across the system & solution landscape.

I am currently working as a solution architect at Visionet system Incorporation, a Gold Microsoft Dynamics partner based in the USA. I have earned the MCT badge this year (2021) and hold quite a few other D365 Finance and Operations certifications including D365 apps solution architect. I have been honored as a D365 “Microsoft Community Contributor (MCC)” and also D365 “Community Star”, providing notable contributions to the D365 finance and operations community forum.

"It’s an honor to be a part of the D365 community where consultants, Microsoft partners, business users, industry experts share valuable knowledge on different topics around the world. There are many critical and complex business processes and features not specifically in D365 finance and operations but also in other D365 family products and sometimes you need expert advice and guidance to solve an issue and recommend the right business practice. The Dynamics 365 Community is the right place to find suggested and verified answers to your questions from different people that will not only point you in the right direction, but will also help you to evaluate different options to design solutions for business use."
